11102-74 The Parallel Axis neck humbucker uses our original dual-pole design and alnico 5 bar magnet, and is a great neck pairing for all Parallel Axis bridge models. The Original Parallel Axis neck was designed balance well with any of our Parallel Axis bridge models – Original Parallel Axis bridge, Distortion Parallel Axis, and Blues Saraceno models. It gives you a bright, clear neck humbucker tone, similar to the Jazz Model. The alnico 5 bar magnet, combined with the precise magnetism of the dual-staple poles, makes the tone even more articulate. Chords sound full and well defined, and single notes have a little more clarity than most neck humbuckers. NOTE: Trembuckers have wider pole piece spacing, perfect for symmetrical positioning under the strings of guitars with a tremolo or wide spaced hard tail bridge (2 or wider from the center of the Low E to High E directly over the bridge pickup). Despite its name, this neck version has a standard spacing of just under 2 or 49mm. Hand made in Santa Barbara, CA, the Original Parallel Axis uses our unique dual-pole design for added sustain, an alnico 5 bar magnet, 4-conductor wire for multiple wiring options, and is vacuum wax potted for squeal free operation.
